Walk to know Singapore

A walk along the Singapore River is really a stroll down memory lane, enlivened by sights and monuments that reflect the city’s rich historical past.

The Esplanade/Merlion/Boat Quay area has some great views of Singapore and makes for a fine walk (or jogging trail if staying nearby). It can get quite hot during the day though; evenings are cooler and breezier, and the night time skyline is equally attractive.

The bulk of Singapore’s historical attractions are packed by the river, and the best place to start your tour is at the mouth of the Singapore River.

The entire Singapore river area is a lovely place for a walk, with small green gardens, old-style bridges and historical buildings, and the nightlife-rich expanse of Clarke Quay and Boat Quay.
